The Sound Department Colloquium Series is a series of presentations by the department's visiting artists and scholars, faculty, graduate students and invited guests. The presentation on September 30 will feature current Sound Department graduate students Eric Capper and Seamus Carey.
Eric Capper is a sound artist, woodworker, and musician from Rockaway Beach, NY. He spent the last few years running a woodshop specializing in fine art framing and fabrication while attending Brooklyn College’s music conservatory, where he began making electronic music and designing sound. He spent the last year exploring the materiality of sound through sound sculpture and instrument construction, as well as the moving image. Eric is an MFA candidate in the Sound Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Seamus Carey playfully explores how listening and sound making form and transform our relationships to ourselves, each other, and our environments. His work often reframes mundane sounds, objects, and systems in order to expose hidden information and potential affect. Current interests include the discrepancies between technologically mediated and “in person” interpersonal communication.
